A mindbending skill puzzle mystery.
"Shapium is a hectic puzzle game which actually features some unique gameplay mechanisms! It has a great price and value as well!"
"The developers of the game have pretty much decided not to explain what Shapium is exactly, and that ploy may have actually worked at hooking those who give the app a chance into thoroughly enjoying it."
AppVee, Rating 4.4 / 5.0
"Very cute game with shapes and odd questions when you complete several levels - worth the small price for the fun distraction!"
What is the Shapium? A mystery above all else, only two things are known: The beings in Shapium must escape and they must not touch one another. Enter the Shapium and experience a mindbending skill puzzle requiring a keen eye and unwavering will to free the mysterious beings.
To excell in Shapium you need to keep track of multiple moving objects at once, not unlike fighter pilots. Do you have similar hidden skills?

10tons Ltd. rules
Sometimes the simplest of ideas just work, if nurtured properly, and this game is a good example. All you do is match up the shapes to their corresponding slots. The types of shapes and the total number of shapes escalates as you move up in level. The spacing and direction of the shapes vary. It is multi-touch, so you can use as many fingers as you can manage to slide the shapes into place, but it is nowhere near as difficult as the original Eliss, for instance. If two shapes ever collide, the game ends abruptly. As simple as the artwork is, it really is detailed and different than most other games. The backgrounds vary every few levels and one of the little creatures pops up and says one of many intriguing phrases. That's about it, really, but it works.
Update: This developer, 10tons Ltd. went on to make quite a few more excellent games including, Boom Brigade, Azkend, and Dragon Portals, all of which are worth a look.
This game has a very simple premise - match the shapes to their corresponding slots. The first screen has one or two shapes, and then it gets progressively harder. The caveat is that the shapes are drawn towards each other, but if they collide, the game is over. It's ridiculously simple, but addictive. As far as I can tell, nothing else happens, but it's a fun game to play.
seems to have limited replay value (for adults). Gets difficult quickly, and then it's hard to move to new levels. So, while it is fun at first, I won't be playing it much anymore. Small bang for the buck once you get past the cool graphics and easy levels.
